You asked for access to insurance. ASTA Small business Network listened.

For many independent travel agents, affordable health insurance access is an ongoing concern. ASTA Small business Network proudly offers access to health insurance and more from WorldWide Insurance Services, Inc. Complete information about this comprehensive package of health insurance and related benefits is available on the dedicated benefits website, which ASTA Small business Network members can access under the Benefits tabs on the ASTA Small business Network member website.

World Class Benefits features three major components:

Health Insurance

Personal plans for individuals and families, and business or group plans for two and up are available via brand-name coverage from companies such as Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, HealthNet, Humana, Kaiser Permanente and UnitedHealthcare. This program includes PPOs, HSAs, HMOs, Medicare supplements and limited-benefit medical indemnity plans.

Also available are Healthcare.gov, SHOP and plans in the public and private health insurance marketplaces for individuals and small businesses. WorldWide Insurance’s advisors assist members by estimating premium subsidies and cost-sharing reductions for plans in the public marketplaces. Travel insurance of all types is available for foreign and domestic travel, and U.S.-style health insurance is offered for international members.

Bonus Benefits

Many of the full complement of life, disability, critical illness and accident plans are discounted for ASTA Small business Network members. The program is enhanced with discounted benefits: LifeLock ID theft protection helps stop identity theft before the damage is done. Members receive a 10 percent discount. Healthy Paws, the No. 1 consumer-rated pet health insurance plan in the U.S., offers ASTA Small business Network members a discount for family pets. Legal Care Direct is a state-of-the-art legal plan with more than 20,000 plan attorneys. Plans for individuals, families and businesses start at $14 monthly. More than 30 discount dental and vision plans are available for ASTA Small business Network members—a great alternative to high-priced, traditional dental insurance. In most states, ASTA Small business Network members will save 10 percent on the plan cost and receive one month of free coverage.

A Healthier U

A Healthier U offers free resources with information about prevention, exercise, nutrition and management of chronic medical conditions. It also offers online health risk assessments, resources for the uninsured and underinsured, and more.

The benefits website includes up-to-the-minute news about healthcare reform and its impact on ASTA Small business Network members. This is the most comprehensive benefits program available to association members in the U.S. Benefits are available to all ASTA Small business Network members, their employees and their families. The program is designed to provide access to affordable health insurance and other benefits, much like those enjoyed by employees of the largest corporations.

As an introduction to the benefits program and a “thank you” for your membership and loyalty, ASTA Small business Network members can download a free, pre-activated prescription drug savings card directly from the website. The card is yours to keep and use right away. You could save up to 75 percent on prescription medications for yourself (and your pets), at pharmacies throughout the country.
